COVID-19 has had a significant impact on vulnerable groups in society. Key populations have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic. Some effects include economic losses and reduced access to health services.
C-TECH Caribbean has been working with partners to compile and exchange best practices and information as they become available, including vital information for People living with HIV (PLHIV) on HIV services impacted by COVID-19 and possible measures to be taken throughout this challenging period.
Consequently, in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Wellness’ HIV/STI/ TB Unit and the Jamaica Network of Seropositives (JN+), C-TECH has partnered together to host a series of monthly virtual information sessions related to HIV Health information via the Zoom web platform. The information sessions target PLHIV, their care and support teams and generally focuses on COVID-19 and HIV. However, due to the growing audience and interest, the sessions have expanded to include general HIV Health information.
This initiative is funded and by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) through a grant awarded to the International Training and Education Center for Health (I-TECH).
If you require additional information on the information sessions or join the next session, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
